HKCC Raiders vs Tai Po Dragons

JJ Nazer & Kaiwan Turrel

After a bye last week the Raiders were keen to prove they deserved a place in NL2 since being promoted last year. After receiving the kick and taking the attack to Tai Po, HKCC Raiders drew first blood with Hank the Tank smashing his way over the line. From this point on Raiders were always ahead. Tries came from both forwards and backs and the boys were clinical in their attack and defence. Still, plenty to work on, but starting to look like the team of last season. A big thank you to Andy Hall’s lineout drills, the boys were able to bamboozle the opposition at lineouts as no one knew where in the lineout Elton was going to jump from, including his own teammates. Try scorers were Henry Chambers with 2, Elton, Will Forsyth, To Lee, Matt Jones and Peter Budd; Conversions: Ross 5 - Man of The Match: Elton - DOTD: Greg Scott

There are days when a scoreline does not truly reflect the close nature and intensity of a match especially when we are up against young fast Chinese kids.....this was not one of those. This was a truly dominating performance by the Raiders from kick off. The forwards predictably bullying them into submission at the breakdowns. Hank the tank absolutely romping over their biggest player for the 1st try set the scene. This followed a 10 minute period where they scored 1 breakaway try and threatened another; once that was nullified we ran in another 5 tries before they hit back. There were moments of sheer quality - Elton scurrying all over to secure rucks, Jonesy tackling any time they threatened the backline, Ross dictating play at 10 Ben's sniping runs at 9, Charlie's 'no step' run to evade 6 tackles, forwards threatening box kicks, or needing to take leaks mid-game. This one had it all.
